It apears as though I may need more inductance in my primary tank
circuit. The resonant frequency will be too high I think. If it helps
any, my primary capacitance is now 6.5nF, and my primary coil's maximum
inductance is still 15.43 uH. That's like 502.8KHz. My secondary has a
self capacitance of about 6pF(thanks, Terry) and a topload of 6.63pF(2"
cord, 6"OD). Inductance? Still 8.164mH. I have no idea what the formula
for calculating the Fr of a series-resonant circuit is. Will I need to put
more inductance in my primary and how? Do I have to worry about profuse
arcing to my arc ring? It's only like 11 inches from the top of my
secondary(I want cool arcs to concrete!). Thank you in advance.
